§ 56. Mr. Marples
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware of the shortage of midwives at the Highfield Maternity Hospital, Wallasey; and, in view of the fact that it may be necessary to refuse maternity cases, if he will take immediate steps to provide the needed staff.
§ Mr. Isaacs:
My Local Officer has received a copy of a letter dated 4th April from the Wallasey Town Clerk to the Ministry of Health and is now in consultation with the Matron regarding her present staffing requirements. I will write to the hon. Member as soon as a full report is received.
